Einstein’s ‘space’ cenotaph (Lebbeus Woods)

sfmoma_LebbeusWoods_09_EinsteinTomb

The late architect and conceptional designer Lebbeus Woods design for an Einstein tomb, which was roughly devised by the idea that Einstein requested that his funeral be remembered in a non descriptive way.  Therefore there was no grave and his ashes were spread across an unknown river close to his home.  But what better way would it have been to have him sealed up in a cenotaph and sent into the cosmos.  A monolith style block with it’s humanistic ornaments that reflect the scientific and creative genius of Albert Einstein.  To travel endlessly throughout the Universe, for only time will store the memories, as the tomb disappears into the continuum of space.
